Posted on Tuesday, June 18 @ 10:11:37 PST by Alex_Osborn
Shigeru Miyamoto, the brilliant mind behind many of Nintendo's most beloved franchises, recently shed light on one of his most underwhelming titles, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
During a Pikmin 3 demo, Kotaku got the chance to speak with Mr. Miyamoto. During their conversation, the outlet asked the game designer if he feels like he ever made a bad game, to which he replied with a simple "Yeah."
Naturally, Kotaku followed up by asking him which game that might be. Through a translator, he sort of double-backed on his prior answer, saying: "I wouldn't say that I've ever made a bad game, per se, but a game I think we could have done more with was Zelda II: The Adventure of Link."
So why NES adventure sequel? Miyamoto explained:
When we're designing games, we have our plan for what we're going to design but in our process it evolves and grows from there. In Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, unfortunately all we ended up creating was what we had originally planned on paper.Interesting explanation, and certainly not the response I was expecting. Do you agree with Miyamoto's thoughts on Zelda II? Did you find one of his other games to be more disappointing? Let us know in the comments below.
